president obama is drawing really large, enthusiastic crowds. yesterday in sioux city, iowa, about 10,000 people turned out to hear him speak. they were fired up. they responded with loud applause. when he tried to paint republicans as the party of the past for saying that the republican national convention was basically like watching tv in black and white. on the other hand, alex, he was greeted at the sioux city airport with a huge sign that read, mr. president, we did build this. of course that's a reference to president obama's you didn't build that comment that the romney campaign has seized onto to try to paint the president s a as big government, antibusiness. what it really represents is the electorate is deeply divided in some of these key battleground states that president obama, mitt romney are stumping in in the days leading up to the democratic national convention. and if you talk to political analysts they say what romney did so effectively in his convention speech was to tap into some that have disappointment and to highlight it. so if you talk to surrogates of presiden
